Biogas (biomethane) is primarily methane gas which is generated from an anaerobic digestion of organic wastes by micro organisms. It has methane as the main component around 50-70 percent, CO2 around 30-40 percent and H2S and moisture in trace quantities. It varies in composition depending upon the substrates used. It is a natural product produced from the biodegradable substrates like cattle dung, poultry waste, food waste, sewage waste etc. a) provide the safe operation of the engine whether stationary or automotive and associated equipments; b) protect the fuel system from the detrimental effects of corrosion, poisoning and liquid or solid deposition; and c) not emit any pollutants or the greenhouse gases after combustion, beyond prescribed limit. Biogas (biomethane) shall be free from liquids over the entire range of temperatures and pressures encountered in the storage and dispensing system, fuel containers, engine and fuel system and piped network. The biogas (biomethane) fuel shall be free from particulate matter such as dust, dirt and mist. Biogas (biomethane) delivered to any vehicle, stationary engine or piped network, shall be odorized similar to a level found in the local distribution CH4, Percent, Min 90 Moisture, mg/m3 Max 16 H2S, mg/m3 Max 30.3 CO2+N2+O2, Max (v/v) 10% CO2 ,Max (v/v), 4% (When intended for filling in cylinders) O2, (v/v) 0.5% Biogas (biomethane) shall be stored and transported through cylinders conforming to IS 7285 (Part 2). For automotive use, it shall be filled in cylinders conforming to IS 15490. It may be transported through piped network or injected into existing system of pipelines as per regulatory requirements. IS 8749 :2002 Biogas Stove (formulated by Mechanical Engg Department)covers construction, operation, safety requirements and tests for stoves intended for use with biogas. IS 12986 (Part 1) :1990 Biogas Plants - Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester Resin Gas Holders Part 1 : With Steel Frame (formulated by Mechanical Engg Department)- specifies the requirements for contact moulded glass fibre reinforced polyester resin biogas holders with steel frame suitable for floating drum type biogas plants. IS 7285 (PART II)- 2004 Refillable Seamless Steel Gas Cylinders - Part 2 : Quenched and Tempered Steel Cylinders with Tensile Strength Less Than 1 100 MPa (112 kgf/mm2) - (formulated by Mechanical Engg Department)- sets out minimum requirements for the material, design, construction and workmanship, manufacturing processes and tests at manufacture of refillable quenched and tempered seamless steel gas cylinders of water capacities from 0.5 litre up to and including 400 litres for compressed, liquefied and dissolved gases exposed to extreme worldwide ambient temperatures (normally between -50 and + 65°C). this part is applicable to cylinders with a maximum tensile strength Rm of less than 1 100 MPa (112 kgf/mm2). FOR THE USE OF ABOVE SPECIFIED CYLINDER FOR FILLING BIO GAS, THE STEEL STRENGTH IS RESTRICIED TO 950 MPa, OTEHRWISE SULPHIDE STRESS CORROSION AND HYDROGEN IMBRITTLEMENT OF CYLINDER OCCURS.

Secretariat - China The chairman - Mr. Li Jingming, ISO/TC 255 meeting - Beijing 2012-10-23 21-23 OCTOBER 2012 AT BEIJING CHINA ONE MEMBER INDIAN DELEGATION FROM MNRE PARTICIPATED AND MADE PRESENTATION ON INDIAN STANDARD WAY FORWARD AGREED DURING MEETING Name of TC255:‘Biogas (anaerobic digestion, AD)’ Working scope: ‘Standardization in the field of biogas in production, utilization and management in rural, urban and industrial sectors’. Proposal Discussed in the meeting - To formulate international standards in the following sectors :Household Biogas, Farm Biogas and Manufacture of Biogas i) Flare for Biogas Plants” specifies classification of biogas flare, system structure, technical performance requirements, test methods and inspection instructions, and applies mainly to biogas hot water boiler with methane flame burner, the normal production of the biogas project and the design and quality control of emissions of methane gas torch burner exceptional circumstances, not including civilian stove and biogas lamps. Household Biogas Design Specifications- specifies household biogas digesters in the production and construction design. Household biogas as an important aspect in the application of biogas technology has been promoted into nearly 40 million households in China, South-east Asia and Africa as well as other developing countries where this technology has been extensively introduced and employed. Due to the absence of corresponding international standards, large number of nonstandard situation has been posed in use of national household biogas, and thus, has resulted in insufficient performance of household biogas use and security problems. Therefore, it is necessary to develop household biogas international standards to regulate, promote household biogas international standardization construction. Reservations about the need for developing Standards for Household Biogas plants indicating that the Standards for biogas plants would need to be entirely different for different countries and even in respective regions of some of the countries due to differences in ambient temperatures, feed materials, gas usage, building materials, and operational regimes, etc. the Standards for household biogas plants could be kept out of the purview of the standardization exercise, which could at the most taken up for developing Standards for certain components such as biogas stoves, piping and accessories and not for biogas plants as such. The Chinese delegation agreed to shelve their proposal and it was decided that a Drafting Committee consisting of a representative each from Kenya, France and China would prepare another note on the subject for inviting comments from the participating countries before moving further.
